Musicians from across the country, including Troop 35’s Noah B., played taps from their front porches at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day. Twenty years ago, Congress passed a law that 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day is “The National Moment of Remembrance.” It’s an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, to take a minute to remember those veterans who have died in military service. Because traditional parades and ceremonies were canceled due to the pandemic, “Taps Across America” was formed as a way to honor the significance of Memorial Day, while remaining socially distant.
Thank you for supporting Troop 35.Scouts will sell wreaths again in the fall of 2020.
